SoloAger Confidence: Remain Relevant and Leverage Experiences to Share Legacy Contributions for an Evolving Society
As a SoloAger, "Are you SoloAging Confidently?"
While living your life today, do you
Share Legacy Contributions...
in being FOR the World, WITH the Planet, and FROM the Whole?
The first question with your response is a Living Life indicator.
The second multi-faceted question may lead you to separate responses.
And now, reread the questions through the lens of wholeness where the two questions are woven together. What is your response?
Let me explain:
Remain relevant, leverage experiences, and share legacy contributions are complete and meaningful paths on their own. Each holds its own value and significance.
To age confidently, you can choose to explore one, learn about another, and then incorporate the third, gradually weaving them together. This approach is certainly a possibility!
However, the true power lies in navigating each of these paths while celebrating their interconnectedness sooner than later.
By weaving them together NOW, you unlock stories and improvements that illuminate your journey, impacting your well-being and well-living with those around you.
It is through the dynamic interplay of remaining relevant, leveraging experiences, and sharing contributions that you uncover the full depth of their transformative potential.
As you intertwine these concepts and practices, you create a tapestry of arrangements and connections that light your path for the world and with the planet.
Embrace the #wholeness of these paths together and let them guide you toward a more meaningful and purposeful aliveness.
By weaving them together, you embark on a journey of caring, connection, and contribution that encompasses your entire being and extends to the greater whole.

Note your response...
With WELLth Movement - we focus on SoloAging, the SoloAger, and what it means to remain relevant, leverage experience, and share contributions through Living Legacy Life lenses.
However --- It would be unfair, if you identify as an Older as Elder, and/or Grandparent,
to state this website is of no value.
That is not the case, there are ideas and insights here for you.
Simply transpose YOU for SoloAger.
Meet Stephen Hobbs
Your Guide on the Ride!
And His Ager Story...
Hi - WELLcome, WELLcome!
I'm an ager - currently in my 69th revolution of the sun (2023).
I walk as a "Solo-Ager".
Grandparent is not a moniker I'll take up.
Maybe adjunct grandparent ))smiles
As to Older to be Elder, I'll leave
that designation to others
to share about me.
I'm an eco-ager, more so than an enviro-ager.
I work from a wholistic education perspective.
Over the years, across many continents, I gathered experience-based wisdom. I wanted to harness my "wellth of experiences" and transform them into powerful tools and techniques for personal growth and influence.
During the development and delivery of the different activities,
I've seen the "applicability required" for an evolving society.
Learning to navigate the shifting landscape is a way I remain relevant & current.
Of importance to my head, heart, and hands was to leverage
my unique strengths and contributions in ways I could live
the legacy I intend to leave for future generations.
Thus - here I am. Inviting you to get involved with the WELLth Movement through which you can help yourself & those you love.
And, for all of us to work together in being
FOR the World
WITH the Planet
FROM the Whole.

Five Shared Encounters SoloAgers Face in Their Journey of SoloAging
The five encounters that follow are outside the financial and legal requirements SoloAgers often mention.
There are others more qualified to share insights on these topics and we encourage you to seek them out as required.
From time to time, we will bring qualified persons to the meetings, webinars, and mentorhearts (think mastermind from the heart) to share overviews on these topics to guide you in how best to move forward.
These five encounters are common and core to what Agers have shared with us. And, there is no need to let them overwhelm you.
Join us online or find others in your area to learn-know-share ways to move forward as you turn an encounter into a story worth sharing.
With one or more of these Encounters - click a Counterpoint Button to learn more!
- Physical Decline and Health Challenges: One of the primary pain points individuals face in the journey of aging is the physical decline that often accompanies it. The issues may include decreased mobility, chronic health conditions, and losing strength and vitality. Coping with these changes can be challenging and impact daily activities and overall well-being.
- Loss of Independence and Autonomy: As individuals age, they may experience a loss of independence and autonomy, which can be a significant source of frustration and emotional distress. Dependence on others for everyday tasks, decreased self-sufficiency, and the need for help can create feelings of helplessness and a loss of identity.
- Social Isolation and Loneliness: Aging can sometimes lead to a decrease in social connections and an increased risk of social isolation and loneliness. Losing friends and loved ones, retirement, and limited mobility can limit social interactions, leading to feelings of loneliness and a lack of support.
- Fear of Cognitive Decline and Memory Loss: Cognitive decline, including memory loss and the fear of developing conditions like dementia or Alzheimer's disease, is a common concern for individuals as they age. Worries about cognitive abilities and the potential impact on daily functioning and relationships can cause anxiety and stress.
- Negative Societal Perceptions and Aging: Aging (ageing) is accompanied by discrimination or prejudice based on age. Negative societal perceptions, stereotypes, and biases can lead to feelings of being undervalued, dismissed, or marginalized. This can impact self-esteem, self-confidence, and overall well-being.

A frequent question asked of us:
What is the Connection between
Aging Confidently and Age Confidence
The connection between "aging confidently" and "age confidence" lies in their shared focus on embracing aging with a positive and empowered mindset. Both concepts revolve around the idea of approaching the aging journey with self-assurance, resilience, and a belief in one's worth and potential.
"Aging confidently" emphasizes the importance of embracing one's age and leveraging the experiences gained throughout life to navigate the challenges and opportunities of an evolving society. It encourages individuals to embrace their wisdom, remain relevant, and make meaningful contributions to the world.
"Age confidence" emphasizes the mindset and attitude with which one approaches the aging process. It involves cultivating self-confidence, accepting the natural changes that come with age, and maintaining a positive outlook on life. Age confidence is about embracing one's unique journey, celebrating personal growth, and recognizing the value and beauty that comes with each passing year.
While "aging confidently" may encompass a broader perspective on how to approach aging - the VERB considerations, "age confidence" focuses specifically on the mindset and emotional linked with the aging experience - the NOUN considerations.
Both concepts, however, emphasize the importance of self-acceptance, self-belief, and the ability to navigate the challenges of aging with grace and positivity.
In summary, "aging confidently" and "age confidence" are interconnected as they both encourage individuals to embrace their age, leverage their experiences, and approach aging with a sense of empowerment, self-assurance, and a wellthy outlook on living legacy life.
